  • We visited the museum that is dedicated to Cuban art, or art made in Cuba. Aristocratic, pastoral, and some religious themes. Then a mad explosion in the sixties. Totally different style and feel, lot...  more »
  • Only Cuban artists. Three floors of the best Cuba has to offer. Interesting expressions of society and personal relationships. 
  • Nice visit, architecturally interesting, worth a quick visit. Nice Museum shop. Too bad you can't take photos.

  • Gigantic museum with the best of Cuban art. I mostly enjoy the retrospectives of contemporary Cuban artists. Must do while in Havana.
  • Excellent collection
  • You should be proud of this museum. Most of the countries in Latin America have no cultural life at all. Great Work.
  • Half of the 3rd floor is pretty boring but the other half, as well as most of the 2nd floor, has some great works.
  • The modern section is located directly behind the Museum of the revolution, in a beautiful building from the 50 's of the last century. Interesting collection of Cuban artists between XIX and XX century
